Store the prompt in a variable
Also null probably means you pressed cancel maybe just enter something.
I'm having the same problem. Sorry how do you do that? (I'm completely new to this)
lets say i call my variable
I can store the prompt in it like this
user_answer = prompt("The question you wish to ask the user here");
I'm pasting exactly the same code and it's not working
Irene, technically Rydan's code that he provided should work. As you stated that you are copying and pasting the code have you tried to re-type the punctuation, from my experience with coding sometimes if you copy and paste code into a text editor or IDE, it doesn't like it. Alternatively if you are still struggling with this question please forward me a print screen of your error message and I will be happy to help .
That's right some sites don't use plain text but some formatting stuff or funny tokens for `'" aso but afaik this should work. Also it often helps to refresh the page if there is no obvious error.
